Potato Latkes


    2 large potatoes
    1 very small onion
    1 small egg
    cooking oil
    1 tablespoon plain flour or breadcrumbs
    Salt and pepper

    1. Peel the potatoes and place in a bowl of water to stop them going black.

    2. Grate the onion on the large holes of the grater into a bowl.

    3. Grate one potato on the large holes of the grater and one on the smaller holes. Mix all the potato with the onion.

    4. Press out as much liquid as you possibly can. Mix in the egg, flour, and salt and pepper.

    5. Heat about 3-4 tablespoons of cooking oil in a frying pan and drop in one tablespoonful of the potato mixture. Cook on one side for 3-4 minutes until golden in color. Turn over with a fish slice and cook the other side for the same period of time.

    Serves 2-3.

    Serve with Apple Sauce.
